A simple Pop-Up card using In The City (Hostess)

Hi! Who doesn’t love an interactive card? I’m sharing a very simple pop-up card created with images from the fabulous Hostess* stamp set In The City.

As the inside of the card is the real star of the card, I chose to have a very simple exterior but I think it is rather striking in its simplicity. All I did was repeatedly stamp images from the stamp set with Wild Wasabi ink on Wild Wasabi cardstock. Finishing off the design with a pop of colour in the form of a heart along with the sentiment was all the outside of the card needed.

Here’s the card…
Welcome
Welcome
Materials Used: Stamps – In the City (143771), Dies – Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies (141707); Cardstock – Wild Wasabi, Basic Black, Whisper White; Ink –
Whisper White, Rose Red; White Embossing Powder.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the background with black ink as I wanted to add depth but, at the same time, I didn’t want the inside of the card to be too busy. I made a little slit at each end of the background to create a ‘step’ where I could place my little village. The card was finished with a sentiment. Very simple but effective! And oh, so fun to make!

Here’s the inside…

  1. OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!! This is my favorite card using this set! A gorgeous green outside with a huge surprise inside! I love the little street of colored houses you’ve created with the taller buildings behind in black and white, WITH the sweetest sky background. This is absolutely brilliant. No. Seriously. Not exaggerating one single bit! I LOVE THIS!!! Whoever gets this card will keep it forever…I know I would!! You smart girl, you!!! xoxo

    1. Oooh, thank you, my friend! I am surprised by how much I loved the simplicity of the front of the card. I had one major design flaw with the inside but it could have been worse. I am soooo thrilled you like it! Thank you so much! 🙂
